Sample Our Music

The following selections are taken from Peacherine’s live concerts and CD recordings.

Listen To That Dixie Band (1915)
One of PRSO’s standard “concert openers”, this up-tempo work was composed by one of the oft-overlooked composers from the ragtime era, George L. Cobb, in 1915. The work was popularized in concert programs across the United States.

Swanee (1918)
The music of George Gershwin is celebrated worldwide, but did you know he got his start at the end of the ragtime era? In 1918 he composed Swanee, which was later picked up by Al Jolson and popularized Gershwin’s name and music.
Pine Apple Rag (1908)
Scott Joplin is heralded as “The King of Ragtime Writers”, and almost every Peacherine program features at least one of his works. Here’s Pine Apple Rag, from 1908, known today as one of the main songs in the soundtrack to the 1974 Academy Award-winning film, THE STING.
The Aba Daba Honeymoon (1914)
America’s popular music started during the ragtime era, and nobody recreates it quite like PRSO and our vocalist William (Bill) Edwards. Here from 1914 is the original orchestration of The Aba Daba Honeymoon.
